>  Does XSLT have a replace function?

Not really, but kind of. XPath has a translate function that does a very
simple replace function.


All this funciton does is takes two lists of characters, and replaces all
occurrences of a character in the first list with the corresponding
character in the second list. So, you can do case changes easily, but
replacing "Jane" with "John" would not work. I don't know of any other way
to do replacing with XSL or XPath.
